to start getting into the flow of bprd you should start reading the trades in the correct order with each trade relying on you having knowledge of the group past adventures and mishaps with hellboy beeing the opstie with seed of destruction a vital read and then any other trade upto to island arc beeing easy to read past the island changed how hellboy is portraed. i perosnaly now enjoy bprd more than current hellboy issue with bprd beeing a comic that shows how a team rearly fucntion with all the members showinjg human problems and emotions. sorry for any spelling mistakes

Yeah, Hellboy is really easy to get into. You really can pick it up at the beginning of any new arc. BPRD is a little trickier, you really have to know what's been going on.

Hellboy has no strict reading order for the most part,you can pick up any trade and go from there, it's just you get a slightly more full filling reading experience in you read it in order, but B.P.R.D. has a linear narrative that you need to read in order
